any one out there who started their dreads with the back combing method..
I backcombed initially and have done no maintenance since. I use the baking soda ACV rinse combo couple times a month and other than that I wash with Dr. Bronners peppermint liquid soap diluted about 1/2 soap and 1/2 water couple times a week. The pic is at about 5 weeks. My dreads have tons of loops and bumps and crazy zigzags.
